On Friday, June 23, the first day of the festival begins with ‘Abreast In A Boat vs. Butts In A Boat’ – an evening challenge between prostrate and breast cancer survivors.
You can go along to the free event and cheer on these two amazing teams as they race to help raise awareness for their causes.
The ‘Barrier Free Canada Cup’ is also taking place on June 23 in partnership with the Rick Hansen Foundation. This race will see eight teams that make it their mission to engage people with challenges, paddle through False Creek to fundraise for their causes.
You can watch the adrenaline-filled race and see the winners cross the finish line at the Concord Pacific Fan Zone. Oh, and this race is on both water and land, so it’s certainly set to be entertaining. And to make it better, Concord Pacific will match pledges up to $5,000 for the team that raises the most for their charity.
